'Scandal' Renewed for Second Season!

Kerry Washington‘s drama Scandal has been renewed for a second season by ABC. We’re so excited!

Shonda Rhimes, the show’s creator, tweeted, “Am super proud to say that @ScandalABC has been picked for a 2nd season!!! Am doing a little dance of joy.”

Revenge, Modern Family, Private Practice, Body of Proof, Apartment 23, and Once Upon A Time have also been renewed for additional seasons.

Kristin Chenoweth‘s comedy GCB didn’t make the cut, and Courteney Cox‘s Cougar Town will be moving to TBS.

ABC is picking up several new shows, according to THR. Their new lineup includes Nashville, a family drama that follows the careers of two country music stars, played by Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere.
